Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers

Summary: (from goodreads) Ashline Wilde never received an instruction manual on how to be a 16-year-old Polynesian volcano goddess. If she had, it might have contained helpful warnings such as: 

• Dreaming about your (thankfully) mortal boyfriend may cause your bed to spontaneously combust 
• Oven mitts should be worn at all times during heavy make-out sessions 

Instead, Ash has to learn these life lessons the hard way as her dormant powers erupt at the most awkward times. In the wake of a hometown tragedy, Ash transfers to Blackwood Academy, a boarding school nestled in California’s redwoods, where a group of fellow gods-on-earth have mysteriously convened. As if sophomore year couldn’t get any worse, her storm goddess older sister, the wild and unpredictable Eve, resurfaces to haunt Ashline. With a war between the gods looming over Blackwood, Ash must master the fire smoldering within her before she clashes with her sister one final time, which leads us to life-lesson #3: 

• When warm and cold fronts collide, there’s guaranteed to be a storm. 

Coming Summer 2011

Here is another one Im excited for. I have never read anything having to do with Polynesian volcano goddesses. The author is one of the ones I have listed for Debut Author Challenge 2011.

Krewe of Hunters #2
Author: Heather Graham
Pages: 400 pgs
Reading Level: Adult
Release Date: June 28th 2011

Summary: (from goodreads) Emerging from the bayou like an apparition, Donegal Plantation is known for its unsurpassed dining, captivating atmosphere, haunting legends…and now a corpse swinging from the marble angel that marks its cemetery’s most majestic vault. A corpse discovered in nearly the same situation as that of Marshall Donegal, the patriarch killed in a skirmish just before the Civil War. Desperate for help traditional criminologists could never provide, plantation heiress Ashley Donegal turns to an elite team of paranormal investigators who blend hard forensics with rare – often inexplicable – intuition. Among them is Jake Mallory, a gifted New Orleans musician with talent that stretches beyond the realm of the physical, and a few dark ghosts of his own. The evil the team unveils has the power to shake the plantation to its very core. Jake and Ashley are forced to risk everything to unravel secrets that will not stay buried – even in death….

Click Here to read the review for Phantom Evil. The author knows how to tell a great mystery tale. Can't wait to read what happens next. 


  1. I love the cover of wildfire I already have it on my TBR and can't wait for the release of it. I also like the sound of Heart of Evil...I'll be adding that to my list as well.

  2. Wildefire! Yes! I totally want that one too :))

  3. Thank you so much for featuring Wildefire in your WoW! Looking forward to hearing your thoughts on it when it comes out.
